My fiance` & I visited Gambaro's Seafood Restaurant for lunch to see whether it would be a place for our reception venue and we were not disappointed. The service staff are second to none. They were attentive, they knew their way around the menu well and they were confident in their service delivery with sheer professionalism and farm friendly smiles.... More

Went for lunch, special offer of 25% off. Large portions, had lobster linguine -lots of lobster in this dish, husband had selection of fish and chips and our daughter had the steak!! Which she said was the best ever. Expensive for lunch even with money off, but staff very attentive and worth it.

We were really impressed with all the personal touches and great service from John and Cameron and all the friendly staff. The food was of course amazing. I have many food intolerances and they made my dining experience so easy and enjoyable. Yes the prices are higher but was well worth it for a special night out.

Fabulous food and theatrics from Chef Flambe in the restaurant! Lobster mornay and crepes Aussie Susie were sensational. Service from our young waiter was lacking and presumptuous, even rude at times. We would prefer to have our wine glasses filled rather than the awkward attempts at being our "mate". More wine would have been purchased from our large group if... More
